    there's an upcoming red-shirt protest this weekend which some claim will be a highlight for them, so i wanted to set up this room for all of us who are traveling to Bangkok or Thailand to keep each other informed on the situation and how everything is.

    Please help fill us in!

    I was in Bangkok last week for seven days. Except for the inconvenience brought about by the mass protest on the streets, I never felt it was unsafe to walk around even within protest areas.

    The Bangkok tourism officials will always suggest that you detour around protest areas and there are a number of tourist attractions that has been closed because of the protest activities.

    Tourists will never be harmed by either yellow or red shirt protesters. I saw some tourists taking pictures in protest area. If you enter protest area, you will surely be warmly greeted.

    Be careful only traffic. No worry about safety.

    Last time I was in Thailand the major problem caused by the protesters was that they shut down the airport. I got out one day before that so this time I'm flying in and out of Phuket. I'll still have to go into Bangkok to get anywhere else but hopefully the train and bus stations won't be affected.
